Appropriate for Grades 6-12

About the Program:

The tipi teaches us how to care for ourselves and reminds us of the good values that make up an honorable person. It teaches community and how to care for others and how we bring ourselves together to live in harmony with all things.

In the different Indigenous Nations across Canada, there are different ways to set up a Tipi based on the area. For this teaching the knowledge will be focused on the Treaty 4 territory and more specifically from the Cree Teachings.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discuss the experiences and traditions of Indigenous Peoples.
  • Participants will learn about the history of the tipi, understand and experience the cultural values associated with the construction of a tipi.
  • Participants will recognize the importance of the role of women in the Indigenous culture.
  • Participants will explore the fifteen traditional Cree values that serve as guide for happy and healthy living.
